Oh my yes! We call it pouting. Our Quaker prefers our 2 kids over my husband and myself. The kids and I left for a couple of days over Christmas Vacation. My husband was at home. You would think that the birds (and other animals) would be okay with him. Its not like we left them home alone or took them somewhere else. Kate (Quaker) refused to interact with him and would fly off to sit by herself "pouting." He sent us pictures of her turning her back to him and sitting hunched over, dejected looking on our son's chair at the the kitchen table. It didn't take that long for her to recover once the kids returned home though.
When the weather turned colder this fall, I stopped taking our conure to work with me daily. When I got home in the evening, he would scream at me then turn his back.
